7PM, NINE PG. 2012. Gifted visualist Tarsem Singh respins the Snow White tale, using squillions of dollars worth of fanciful sets, costumes and special effects and Julia Roberts as the evil Queen Clementianna. Star power helps this one rise above the average mark.
THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL
9.20PM, TEN M. 2014. Quirky comedy that follows the misadventures of a European hotel concierge. If you have journeyed into one of Wes Anderson’s amazing alternate universes before then you’ll know a seriously sumptuous treat awaits here.
9.30PM, SBS1 PG. 2009. English naturalist Charles Darwin (Paul Bettany) struggles to find a balance between his revolutionary theories and his relationship with religious wife Emma (Jennifer Connelly), whose faith contradicts his work. Merely passable due to awkward editing.
